Kickup Strong is another tobacco and nicotine free snus from the Kickup brand. Strong is, as the name suggests, the most powerful offering from this brand. Developed using black tea as a base, it has a strong hit to it that comes fuelled with Guarana, ginseng, and a number of vitamins and minerals and of course a stronger than usual flavour. Though made with a tea base, the taste is more peppery, adding to that fiery kick.
The packaging of Kickup Strong is intense. The tin is a matt black with the lid completely devoid of any text. The only words are around the edge of the tin in bold orange lettering, screaming Strong. The grey arrows point skyward; a challenge to the user, perhaps, to see if they can handle this snus. The dramatic packaging alone is reason enough to grab a tin for a taste.
The Guarana is most commonly found in Brazil. The name harks back to the indigenous peoples who thought the fruit looked like human eyeballs. Its caffeine content has long been utilised, and for Kickup Strong, it makes for the perfect, naturally powerful, energy boost.
